      Conne River is one of the best Aboriginal Reserves in all of Canada, they have some of the lowest crime, poverty and substance abuse rates in Canada. They deserve funding from the Federal Government.

    Some might consider it a waste, but theft of land and resources is ok then I guess. The native people of Canada have more right to this land then any of us just incase you forgot that. Think about how many decades has this province taken hand outs as well. Do you not think the rest of Canada thought that was wrong too or did you forget all about that fact. Seems that such utter ignorance goes hand in hand these days. We OWE, yes owe the Native people of this land far more then we give.

    i think more of the money should go into the tourism aspect, at least that might generate a return, and help neighbouring communities.

    the recreation money is a waste, i've seen them burn holes into their baseball field during pow wows (fires in wigwams). that was part of a huge outdoor recreation park (baseball, softball, soccer, and track and field), it was beautiful but never maintained all that well, there's just not enough interest in small towns to support this....the same will happen to this facility, it will get used less and less and in a few years someone from band council will turn it into a bed and bareakfast or something.

    What a compete waste of money! Why not put the money into something useful.. They will only whatever they feel they 'are entitled to.' If they feel that they have a right to net a river, poach 100 moose, they will do it. Give them money and they will build what is intended, only to use it for other reasons in 2 years time. Cut off all federal and provincial funding to the place and let them be treated the way everyone else gets treated in the province. Make them pay taxes on their gas and all other purchases like the rest of us 'non-natives'

    That's my $0.02

    What a bunch of ingrates in here! Does anyone know the real history of our native people and their struggles since the first contact with our murderous forefathers?? Shame on you all for your blatant ignorance and greed...it's attitudes like this that make me ashamed to be of the white race!

    congrats to the proud people of Conne River. their many positive accomplishments over the years make them a real model for other communities to try and keep up with.

    Kinda strange how when an area like Paradise or St. John's gets money for recreation it's hailed as a start and not enough. When a first nations community gets the money everyone screams that it's a waste of money. Why is that?
